The Lagos SWAN Chairman, Debo Oshundun, in a statement signed on Sunday saluted the doggedness of the state government in the fight against the pandemic. According to Oshundun, the Governor and his team deserve all commendation as their commitment and spirited approach have curbed the spread of the virus in the state and the country at large. He said: “Without doubt, Mr. Governor and his team have done very well and we thank them for giving Lagosians hope with their novel response which have greatly helped in nipping the scourge in the bud. “We marvel at the speed at which the isolation centres were built and other medical provisions were readily made available. Patients were given the best treatment and promptly discharged after testing negative to the virus. “So, on behalf of our members, we thank the Governor, his deputy, cabinet members, and the Lagos State House of Assembly for giving succour to the good people of the state.” The frontline journalist also pleaded with the state government not to relent in the efforts to ensure the state is safe and COVID-19 free. Oshundun urged Lagosians who engage in jogging, physical exercises and playing football during the lockdown period as prescribed by government to desist from the practice. He said: “It is important to note that some individuals engage in various forms of physical activities in clusters contrary to the government’s stay-at-home and lockdown directives. “Lagos SWAN hereby appeals to them to stop flouting government directives. “Those who desire to engage in keep-fit exercises can do that in their respective homes. “The stay-at-home directive will only last for few weeks and we will all go back to our normal lives. “Government’s social distancing directive is in the interest of us all.” As at Saturday evening, 50 patients, including an 11-year-old boy, have been discharged from the Lagos State Isolation facilities, having recovered fully and tested negative to COVID-19.Tags: Babajide Sanwo-OluCOVID-19Debo OshundunSWAN

The Cubs fan’s hand will be wrapped around a cold one, even on a 45-degree night.Or it will be gripping someone’s shoulder, even a stranger’s, for emotional traction.Mostly, that fan’s hand will be encouraged to mind its own business.Fourteen years ago, the Chicago Cubs came home with a 3-2 lead in the National League Championship Series, with at least as much hope as the 2016 Cubs on Saturday night. Mark Prior and Kerry Wood, their two best arms, were pitching Games 6 and 7. The ball popped out. Castillo walked. Ball four was a wild pitch that sent Pierre to third. Fans began cursing the man with the Renegades shirt.Alou and manager Dusty Baker came to argue.“I was looking at Prior,” Glanville said. “I figured this was just a foul ball, nothing major, but I knew how well he was pitching and how he should keep going. You argue but at some point you scale it back.”Pudge Rodriguez singled home Pierre, and shortstop Alex Gonzalez botched a ground ball from a rookie named Miguel Cabrera.Derrek Lee doubled home two runs. Numbingly, Prior was gone. Kyle Farnsworth was in and the Marlins sculpted an eight-run inning and an 8-3 win.The fan was escorted into a holding room and hundreds waited by the door, cursing and chanting. Police took him home. Not until the next day was he identified as Steve Bartman, a financial consultant and Notre Dame alum. “Renegades” was the youth baseball team he coached.Was it The Curse? Yes, the Curse of Game 6s everywhere.Mrs. O’Leary’s Fan shared one thing with Kirby Puckett’s homer and David Freese’s homer and Don Denkinger’s lapse and the Giants’ bullpen meltdown and the grounder that went through the Bill Buckner tunnel.It did not end the season. Game 7 did.“That’s how we felt,” Glanville said. “We thought Kerry might have one of those 20-strikeout games and we’d still win.”Wood homered and had the Cubs ahead, 5-3. But Florida used Josh Beckett in emergency relief, with two days’ rest from his Game 5 shutout. He pitched four one-hit innings here. By then, Wood was fatigued, Farnsworth was again vulnerable, and the Marlins kept hitting and running until they won, 9-6.Then Beckett threw a Game 6 shutout in Yankee Stadium to win the World Series. Beckett bears no resemblance to Clayton Kershaw unless you’re a Cubs fan, and you think “2003” was a space odyssey to hell.“I hope he (Bartman) doesn’t have to live with this,” Alou said.Thanks to a diligent agent, Bartman has lived with it silently. He has not commented to anyone, even to ESPN, which devoted a “30 for 30” segment to him. This proves, again, that privacy is a choice.“I’ve always felt terrible for him,” Glanville said. “He was a fan doing what any fan would do. If it happened in a Double-A game, nobody would remember.“This (Cubs) team is looking at this as an opportunity, but Dusty used the same approach with us. This is a much younger team than the one we had. They know there will be other chances. You always want to respect history, but humility teaches you that there’s always another chapter to the book, and you can’t know how it ends. You just approach it the same way, like a baseball game.”The Cubs themselves can let their hands go. For those who follow them, curse them and long for the day when they can trust them, it’s all they can do to get a grip. Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Error “People talk about electricity, but this was like lightning bolts with thunder mixed in,” said ESPN’s Doug Glanville, then a Cubs outfielder who won Game 3 with a pinch-hit triple.“We were getting police escorts. Getting dinner reservations became an experience when they recognized your name. It was an amazing time.”The Florida Marlins came, too. They had won more games than the Cubs in 2003 and also had the nerve to win the 1997 World Series in their fifth year of existence. The Cubs hadn’t done that since 1908, when the hottest hit song was “Take Me Out To The Ballgame.”Surely there would be balm in Gilead.On cue, Prior barged into the eighth inning with a 3-0 lead. Juan Pierre doubled with one out. Luis Castillo was the hitter and sent a foul near the left-field bullpen. Moises Alou trotted over and held out his glove, but another hand came out, belonging to a young, dark-haired guy with glasses and a shirt that said “Renegades.”

Griffin fell to the floor immediately, and remained down for several minutes as team physicians tended to him. He walked off under his own power and went to the locker room.“Blake’s a pretty tough guy, he should be OK,” teammate DeAndre Jordan said. “But we definitely want him to be cautious and do whatever he needs to do to be OK.”Nick Young and JaVale McGee each scored 11 points, and Klay Thompson and David West added 10 apiece for Golden State, playing with Kevin Durant sidelined by a right calf strain.

Eleven in his first five minutes, 17 before the game was 8 1/2 minutes old.“I just wanted to start off the game right,” Curry said. “It’s obviously weird starting a game at 12:30 (p.m.).

It’s a tough one.”AFTERNOON APPREHENSIONAfter dramatic victories in back-to-back games over Dallas and Houston, Warriors coach Steve Kerr worried about how the Warriors would react to the game’s 12:30 p.m. starting time.“It’s a genuine concern,” Kerr said. “Particularly because it was a unique back-to-back in Dallas, with travel back from Houston.
